Hey there. I know this sounds bad for people that are willing to "help" Public Beta Environment, but this would make everything else worse.
We are having 60 minutes login queues. I used to play (PBE) when it got out. The problem it had was, The 60 minutes queues were not to login, but to find a game. Now it takes a few seconds and youre already matched up.
This is completely crazy. I find this intersting to see a testing environment growing up quickly like this.
However, people complaining about sign-ups closure is totally making me upset. People clearly say "Let me register so I can play PBE". Good. Thats nice to hear. But have you thought about logging in? If wed open the sign ups after a 3 months closure, imagine, just imagine the amount of people that would eventually login to the server.
The login queues are already heavy. Right now they hit most likely a one hour queue. Which is not that bad. Nevertheless, when a big patch hits the PBE server, the queues can raise up to 3 hours, and in weekends, it can go up to 5 hours.
With this amount of people awaiting the opening of the sign-ups, you can eventually except a 7 hours login queue, if not more.
This is sad to hear. I have been quite decreasing my PBE activities, since I want to let people enjoy the server, as ive been enjoying it for almost a year.
-The PBE was meant for North America regions at first. (They still allow it worldwide).
-People banned on live servers, come on PBE to share a bit more of their toxicity. (They do not risk being banned)
-When signups are up, people usually create up to 3 accounts to assure themselves a longer run before the sign ups re-open.
I have been suggesting this idea in June, but got downvoted a lot. I have seen other summoners sharing out the same idea, and I just think it is more needed than ever.
To reduce login queues we should have our account linked on a live server(Worldwide) and it should be level 20 or higher.
This could possibly help a lot the dedicated testers, and have less games with toxic players.
